Python Modules for Next-Generation Sequencing Data Analysis.

Project description


This package is used for maniputating genome annotation and seqeunce files, such as Bed, GenePred, BAM, Wiggle and BigWig formats. Users interested in this package should contact for details. This package uses the UCSC lib and inc directories (in KentLib), and users should read the README file inside and behave accordingly.

PREREQUISITES 1. numpy 2. pysam for SAM file manipulation 3. argparse for Python 2.6


  1. This package is base on Python 2.7. This package is only tested on linux 64bit machines. Other platforms may not work well.

  2. Simply run the if you have root privilege, otherwise, specify the directory of your install path by “–prefix=install_path”. >python install –prefix=install_path

  3. Set the PYTHONPATH environment varialble. >vi ~/.bash_profile PYTHONPATH=$PYTHONPATH:install_path/lib/python2.7/site-packages export PYTHONPATH >source ~/.bash_profile


  • IO: Read various biological data

  • DB: Build DB for genomic data for fast query.

  • Pipeline: Pipelines built using wrappers of commonly used tools.

  • Bed: Genomic coordinates data format.

  • BedList: A list of Bed instances.

  • wTwoBitIO: python module for retrieve fasta sequence from 2bit file.

  • wWigIO: python module for retrieve Wiggle region from BigWig file.

  • wRNA: python module to fold RNA structures.
